Re: Cooper; new stuff added 08/29/2018

Awesome sub story in the greater Cooper world. I like how the "bad guys" don't have to be nomadic apocalyptic crime lords out to take over entire towns and are more believable as they reflect the type of characters I would expect in the story line being displayed... again just awesome. I am looking ...

Ah, Doc.... just reread this series for the third or more time. I am hoping you may have some more of the Cooper world to share. Really excellent tales.

While, I have really enjoyed Hannah, Owen, Cole and Jesse in the zombie changed world, your Cooper stories are the most excellent. I like the world you have created with all of the normal dangers of temporary stove piping to motorcycle gangs wanting control of the local area an dhow the locals all w...

Re: Single Stack 9 mm Striker mid to full size less than $40

Beretta Nano. Great pistol. I really like the one I have. Slightly heavier than my buddy's Glock 43, but seems to shoot better as it absorbs the recoil better. Easy to find under $400 and comes with 2 magazines. I like the smooth profile and simplicity of this pistol. Seems to come out of my pocket ...

Airship story - The Flying Cloud

In response to TacAir's two recent posts that gave me two new sites to displace considerable time to, I offer a similar site of text and animation for a story of Airships, post WWI timeframe and a very interesting story... set aside some time when you start this story:

Re: Help me compile a shotshell conversion tool kit

There are some good video on Youtube showing the roll crimping onto converted slugs from birdshot. You need the $32 BPI roll crimper to add to your tool set and some easy way to spin it. Drill motor usually. Basically trim the shell case down flat just above the slug face (~1/8"+). Easiest way is to...

Re: Don't count on those Korean M-1 Garands being imported y

Here is one recent news blurb on the Korean M1 and M1 carbine situation. LOTS of M1 Carbines! A pair of those would be my choice...... but looks like 87,000 M1s may have been approved. Can they really be selling for $220? Hell, the importer will sell out in 1 day! http://www.koreatimes.co.kr/www/new...

Re: Trading my Tundra for a midsize SUV, halp me choose

Trade for a new double cab 4x4 Tundra. Gives you the best of all of what you are looking for: "OK" mileage, 4x4, double cab, comfortable highway miles and you already like the
Tundra.....

I have 185,000 on my 2006 Tundra 4x4 and have had nothing break yet. Only done routine maint and tires.

There is still good deals on Lynn's special projects site that you can directly order from. Not sure why you would order from Knife Center, etc. when you could order direct.

Re: Would you use this sight for your HD shotty?

Make sure your new HD Shotgun actually has a vent rib to mount this type of sight. Many HD shotguns with short barrels have a round barrel profile. I think the Remington turkey barrel is 22" and have a vent rib.

Looks like a well made sight and easy to remove if you end up not liking it.
